St. James's Church- London, England
4:05 PM - Sunday, September 8, 1940

Elizabeth Young and John Barrow walked back into St. James's Church, where Reverend Giles Curry was serving tea to their friends. Story and Brook were there, as were Lord Rufus Colville, Reverend Archie Pennyfeather, Phyllis Cruckshank, Maggie Duncan, Benjamin Klein, Seamus O'Leary, Anna Jerkins, and a middle-aged man they hadn't seen before.

"Good day, sir. I don't believe we have the pleasure of meeting?" Anna said, doffing an imaginary hat towards the stranger.

Spoiler:
The unidentified man is Charles Davis, who Elizabeth and John haven't met yet, though I believe the rest of you have. I'm sorry I didn't make that clear.

Phyllis Cruckshank waggles her fingers at the newcomers. "Have some tea, dears. We were just discussing the Steadmans and Mrs Exeter who has been seen at large at their house in Bayswater. And whether they were responsible for Nell Murrow's death which we now think was murder."

"Thank you," says Elizabeth smiling, and going over to get some tea, before sitting down. "We also have a little more information about the air attacks that may be relevant too."

Charles puffs out his cheeks, and gingerly raises himself to his feet again, and extends a further greeting to the two new comers. "Afternoon Sir, Miss, Charles Davis at your service " he then collapses back into his chair, still bewildered as to why these people are talking about going to the home of a suspected murderer.

Benjamin addad:

"As for our excursion to the British Library, we found a reference which could match the description of the winged beast attacking the airplanes. Helpfully, the book suggested that we could overpower it by trapping it in a beam of bright light.

So, what shall we do now?

"Winged Beast? Attacking aircraft? What in the heavens do you mean?!" Cries Sybill, looking up as if there is one flying around the church.

"The was this German pilot we captured, and he claimed his plane was brought down by a strange beast. At first we didn't believe him, but perhaps there is a grain of truth behind this after all. How it related to the case of the murdered girl is still a mystery, though...."

“We’ve neither seen any evidence thus far that confirms the existence of the beast in question nor are we in a situation to explore the possibility of its existence. We are in the midst of war and air raids. Hardly the appropriate time.” Anna said.

"There may have been a second airplane attacked,'" says Elizabeth. "I'm sorry that I can't say more about where this information comes from, indeed I've probably said more than I should. But the source is reliable, completely. It's not certain that any 'beast' was involved, but there's no other explanation at the moment, and the damage to the plane was the same."

"I agree with Miss Jenkins" pipes up Charles from his seat. "All this talk of monsters, and murders, it sounds unbelievable." He looks from Anna to Elizabeth "And you got this information from a captured German pilot? We're at war, they'll say anything to save their skins"

"What I just said didn't come from a German pilot, it's from an official British source, and totally reliable," says Elizabeth. "But I'm sorry, I can't say who."

"Im sure I remember someone saying that Nell Murrows was mauled as if by a savage beast. Could it be the same one?" asks Phyllis.

Finally breaking into the chatter, Story says, "Ms Murrows was mauled by a savage beast, there can be no doubt. I'm quite confident that we will find the proof that the beast we learned about at the museum is the perpetrator of the crime. As far as what Elizabeth has said, you can trust her. If she said it's her information is from a reliable source, it is."

Elizabeth smiles and nods at Story's words, grateful for the support.

"So what should our next step be?" asks Elizabeth, turning especially to her friends Story and Brook. "We can't investigate from the air, even if there is a creature, but is there something useful we can do on the ground? Is it worth pursuing the Steadmans and Mrs Exeter more? Or might something else be more appropriate?"

"Mrs Duncan and I are happy to show you the Steadmans' house but you'll have to wait and watch until they come home I expect." Says Phyllis
